I know, I know…I may as well be banging my head against the wall when it comes to this subject. Seems I’ve been doing this in numerous phases and fashions over many years now when it comes to two different administrations, congress-critters, illegal immigration and the rule of law! BUT, for some danged reason I can’t stop fighting the right fight and so fight I will continue to do… as we all should!

Now some of you may recall when I posted about this report back on the eighth of March: QUESTION OF THE DAY: ‘DO YOU THINK THE DHS WILL COMPLY?‘ – Well, this is what’s happened today…this is via FN:

The top U.S. immigration enforcement official acknowledged Thursday that the Obama administration has in fact released thousands of illegal immigrants from local jails over the last month despite prior claims that the release was only in the hundreds.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton, at a House appropriations subcommittee hearing, said the agency released a total of 2,228 illegal immigrants from local jails “throughout the country” between Feb. 9 and March 1 for “solely budgetary reasons.”

For the first time, he explained the kinds of detainees that were sprung from local jails — he said they included detainees held on theft charges, financial criminals and drunken drivers.

“In some cases, multiple DUIs,” Morton acknowledged. He also said 10 individuals labeled as “Level 1” offenders — the most serious classification — were released, but that four have since been brought back into custody. That category can include assault cases but Morton said the detainees were mostly in for financial offenses.

Morton stressed that the releases were made on a case-by-case basis and not “willy-nilly.”

“There are no mass releases of dangerous criminals under way or any plan for the future,” he said.

But the subcommittee chairman, Rep. John Carter, R-Texas, claimed the detainees could still pose a “risk” and questioned why ICE didn’t seek additional authority to move around its budgeted money.

ICE has claimed that it was operating under a constrained budget — with a short-term budget expiring at the end of the month and the sequester kicking in March 1.

But Morton’s acknowledgement that more than 2,000 were released appeared to conflict with prior claims from the administration, which said it was only releasing hundreds.

The Associated Press first reported March 1 that the administration had released more than 2,000 illegal immigrants since at least Feb. 15 and planned to release 3,000 more in March due to looming budget cuts, but Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said days later that the AP’s report was “not really accurate” and that the story had developed “its own mythology.”

“Several hundred are related to sequester, but it wasn’t thousands,” Napolitano said March 4 at a Politico-sponsored event.

On March 5, the House Judiciary Committee publicly released an internal ICE document that it said described the agency’s plans to release thousands of illegal immigrants before March 31.

Morton now says multiple factors were driving the release, but it took until now for the agency to provide the number.

Republicans have said the release was part of a campaign by the administration to make budget cuts look as bad as possible.

“At the time this release started, the president of the United States was going around the country telling people what the pain was going to be from sequester,” Carter said. “That’s a fact. That was the atmosphere. It was Chicken Little, the sky is falling almost.”

Morton told Carter that more immigrants were released in Texas than in any other state, but did not name other states where they were released.

The immigrants who were released still eventually face deportation and are required to appear for upcoming court hearings. But they are no longer confined in immigration jails, where advocacy experts say they cost about $164 per day, per person. Immigrants who are granted supervised release — with conditions that can include mandatory check-ins, home visits and GPS devices — cost the government from 30 cents to $14 a day, according to the National Immigration Forum, a group that advocates on behalf of immigrants.

Then we have this from today as well:

Department of Misplaced Priorities
DHS hires staff, spends money on questionable projects even as it releases illegal immigrants and furloughs

And…just one more quick one, but very interesting nonethless since the dems had everything to do with this! – It’s a quick read, you can be sure you’re not going to hear about this anytime in the msm either:

Democrats push back on Obama’s amnesty – Administration’s coddling of illegals appears unraveling

So friends…should we all just forget about what’s happened at this stage of the game or not? Do you think anyone’s head will roll about this issue? Do you think what’s happening by releasing these illegal criminals is unconstitutional and illegal itself by those who made the order to do this? And just who made the original order?

And one more quick question friends: How many of you think any of those released are going to show back up for their court hearing date? – On it’s face, that’s laughable!

I don’t know friends…no heads have rolled from Solyndra, Leakgate, Fast and Furious, BENGHAZI, and now this as well. I hope against hope all is not futile…what say you?

    No, Obama’s administration is accountable to no one. One excuse after another will be made to justify their actions. And we cannot rely on Eric “My People” Holder to do anything about it either. There might a couple of Republicans who will demand answers, but Obama and his cohorts will stall, deny and essentially cover-up any criminal or ethical wrong doing. This is the “transparent” Presidency that Americans voted for. Such fools!

    By the way, as you know, many of those recently released illegal aliens will not show up for their immigration court hearings. But even those who do, shouldn’t be too concerned because they have the right to request an extension in order to secure legal services, legal assistance and advice, including time for case preparation. If this extension happens to delay the matter past 6 months (which it will), they cannot be lawfully deported according to current federal immigration law. Our entire immigration system is designed to NOT deport illegal aliens or to at least place obstacles in the way of any immediate deportation.

    This is but another example of how insane our country has become. I’m glad bigtimer that you still have a lot of fight in you to want to affect change within the U.S., but I cannot even begin to see how this mammoth Leftist web can start to be detangled. If people only saw how widespread and deeply-rooted liberalism is within the U.S., they might not be so optimistic. Americans are up against a monster of their own making.

    The only plausible scenarios I see are either a massive civil war, secession between the blue and red states, or complete capitulation on the part of conservatives to the Leftist agenda making us, essentially, slaves.

    I hope I’m wrong. Maybe there are some options I am not aware of that might provide some glimmer of hope? But we have traveled too far down the liberal path and I fear that Americans lack the collective will to find their way back.

    • Unfortunately BluffCreek…I fear you’re right. You most certainly hit the nail on the head. You articulated everything to a tee…your options for this nation concerning this matter are also spot-on! I never thought I’d live to see the day something like this would happen to our country…I was wrong.

  2. He didnt release them for budget concerns..he released them to make more f’ing democrat voters! I wouldnt shed a single tear if bands of vigilantes were going around killing off illegals. Since the feds wont do their job, perhaps its time for the people to do it for them.

  3. This lesbian hack Janet Napolitano has an agenda and it aligns with this President.
    The plan is to flip the demographics of America and to smash the Patriarchy and the white “euro-centric” male.
    We have millions of illegal aliens in this country with no health screening, no psyche evaluations and no criminal background checks. They have been given a “protected status”.
    The total disregard by this Federal Government for the public safety is beyond outrageous, it’s criminal negligence!
    mexican drug cartels and their symbiotic relationship with american gangs is all too clear, they are now in all corners of this country,
    and in every major city.
    On the one hand they won’t protect the public safety, and on the other hand they want us disarmed and unable to protect ourselves and our families.
    What is going on here?

  4. President Obongo is doing the very best he can…….I know most of you are haters and just want to malign the greatest president of all time but we have to understand that President Obongo has a very hard job and is working day and night to prevent the Republican lead “sequester” from devastating our economy…….

    White house tours for little children had to be suspended because of the sequester cuts and an imminent threat of little terrorist children bringing in homemade atomic bombs supplied by the mad scientist of North Korea………Those white house tours had to be stopped for the safety of all the children of America…….

    President Obongo needs all of us including the illegals released from our jails to watch for marauding hordes of dead people and for us to pull together to avert the zombie apocalypse that is looming in our future because of sequester……. Our great leader, the “beautiful” Janet Napolitano at DHS is buying up ammunition in order to defend us against these marauding zombie hordes….She knows a bullet to the head will stop the zombies and just wants to be prepared by releasing the illegal aliens to assist us in watching for the first sign of of the dead rising from their graves……..

    President Obongo himself is out and about the countryside looking of for these zombies in order to protect us as this picture clearly shows……..So please give the greatest president of all time some respect……..

    Rest assured our president is on the job……….examine this picture of our president and see for yourself…..I think it is obvious we are in good hands…….


  5. Mr. Grumpus says:

    That’s too funny BT! Tell me another one! Bwahahahahahahahahaha! You tell funny jokes!

    • Howdy Mr. G…

      In the real world you’d almost think someone was joking if they said something like this was taking place in the USA…not with this administration, not at all!


    Obama is a TRAITOR he is delberatly allowing thousands of crinimals to run loose while at the same time wanting to disarm all americans Its time to call for his IMPEACHMENT under grounds for acts of TREASON

    • Good morning Spur…

      This is exactly what angers me the most. What’s been done here has to be ‘ILLEGAL’…obviously treasonous, and certainly grounds for impeachment if you can prove Dear Leader gave the orders to do this, or knew all about it and gave the go-ahead nod of approval…and we all know he most likely did just that! If he had nothing to do with this, he would have made a statement for all to hear, plus call for an outside investigation…named by the repub party or some such thing.

      I fear nothing, absolutely nothing will be done.

    • Sorry spur,

      I didn’t read through the comments before I posted mine below yours. I pretty much said the same thing, and if I would have read your comment first, I would have simply agreed with ya. Time for impeachment.

  7. They want to take guns away from law abiding citizens, all in the name of safety, and yet they turn around on the other hand and release violent criminals??!! WTF!! Obama has over stepped his authority and has violated his oath of office. He is no king, he cannot arbitrarily decide which laws to enforce, he took an oath to uphold them all, not to subvert and break those laws. IMHO.

    • I support your humble opinion…in every way imaginable when it comes to this topic and what’s taken place!

      • Big, this truly is disturbing and disgusting. I know you and I do not see eye to eye on every issue, but it is really great when we can find common ground. Keep up the fight gal!!

  8. Check this out. – This goes hand in glove to what I posted last week about this…http://angrywhitedude.com/2013.....-going-on/

    Now see what’s new today ~


    • I was just going to post that, but you beat me to it. LOL A good read for all of you Sig Sauer lovers. I’ve owned one Sig in my life, a P-232, and it will be the last one I can tell you that. Any arms company or ammo manufacturer that does business with the government from now on, is not to be trusted. I’m talking federal government.

    • I read the article a bit more carefully, and I’m wondering if the contract is for 4.5 million over five years, or 450 million. Which one is it Mr. Hoft?

  9. I wonder when they say ‘rearrested’ several, just what that means? How many is several…2, 3, 4, what? How vague can they get…how dumb do they think we are?


  10. Spurwing Plover says:

    Sorry im just a angry shorebird who is getting fed up with those pompouius peacocks in WASHINGTON D.C.(DISTRICT of CRINIMALS)who think their so better then us plain old birds

    • Spur…

      Your not alone when it comes to anger…methinks plenty of us share your sentiments my friend!

  11. How does this action not set a precedent for every criminal incarcerated to petition the courts for release. if the law is to be administered fairly and justice is blind, then everyone should be set free.

    How are some criminals less equal than others? Why are the Black Criminals still in jail and the Hispanic Criminals get released, and the White Criminals never go to jail because they hire a lawyer.

    How are criminals serving time for drug possession more unlawful than
    “detainees held on theft charges, financial criminals and drunken drivers” why don’t we let them go too.

    How about criminals over the age of 60? They got to be costly, set them free.

    Hell if we use enough moral relativism we should set all criminals free, for who among the democrat party, and the current White House has not bent the rules to get what they want.

    Besides we need room in the jails and prisons for the most dangerous monsters… Conservatives that don’t believe Obama

    • Wow Waspish…what’s that they say these days when someone agrees with and admires someone’s post/comments? – ‘WORD!’

  12. Speaking of Benghazi…anyone heard about this?


    Anyone surprised?

  13. Snake Oiler says:

    “This is the most petty, malicious, mean-spirited, cowardly and hateful thing this petty, malicious, mean-spirited, cowardly and hateful president has done”.


    This is the type of message I’m talking about. Only the brain-dead wouldn’t be able to understand it.

    • Of course Dear Leader’s trying to make this nation hurt because he didn’t get his way. Just like a two year old throwing a temper-tantrum because he can’t have his favorite binky or something.

      Btw…speaking of sequester, Dear Leader thinks this was really funny today.


      Just a regular comedian! – NOT!

    • “Why would the President of the United States try to punish the nation he has sworn to protect?”

      Because that is what he was put there for. And he is anti-colonial, just look at the movie ‘2016’. That film put it all together regarding Obama and his ideology. But you know these things Snake, I know you do.

      • Snake Oiler says:

        Yes, I do. It pains me to say it, but even when confronted with the most absolute of evidence, the clearest of warnings, even the strongest intuitive feelings – that which is known as the ‘normalcy bias’ usually defeats them all. ‘It’s been this way for a long time and this is the way it will remain’. ‘It’s never happened before, therefore it won’t happen – at least not here’. I actually took in a course that dealt in some detail with this phenomenon and what the most well-known results were. The Holocaust. Kampuchea. The Armenian genocide. There were many more, of course, these were just the most spectacular. I have maybe a little insight as far as to how you might think, though it might be presumptuous of me to say so. Common time frame, anyway. It hurts. ‘This is not America’.

  14. Jumpin Joe says:

    This is the O’Bama shuck and jive. Create so many other crisis, i.e. gun control, immigration, sequestration etc. to draw attention away from the one thing that is going to collapse this country, the economy. If the Demorats can draw attention to these other things, when the economy finally reaches the point of no return O’Bama will have created the perfect storm. The chance for a socialist utopia complete with a total destruction of the Constitution and martial law.

    • Yep…he and his ilk have many irons in the fire for the agenda quota being fulfilled before they have to exit DC.

  15. The audacity, the arrogance of AG Eric Holder and the DoJ isn’t astounding, it’s treasonous. So is his boss. – Why isn’t the msm covering this? (sarcasm) Why aren’t our leaders screaming about this? (not sarcasm) – As usual…color me furious…nothing will be done about this either…nothing!

    Check this out…it’s a short read, see if your hair isn’t on fire, or at least it doesn’t frost your flakes.


    Btw…Holder told ABC news that the ‘contempt’ vote didn’t bother him. – Check this out folks!

  16. Snake Oiler says:

    This is absolutely tremendous.

    Obama’s ‘You Didn’t Build It’ Canard

    Barack Obama recently proved once again that he is indeed a Proud Marxist (as Yuri Maltsev, former advisor to Mikhail Gorbachev, calls him) when he argued that successful American entrepreneurs “didn’t build” their businesses on their own. Government bureaucrats were mostly responsible for their success, the Marxist in the White House asserted, citing government-run schools, roads, etc. Like all Marxists, Barack Obama is belligerently ignorant of economics and is in denial of much of economic reality.

    Government spending at all levels accounts for some 40 percent of GDP, signifying that the American economy is at least 40 percent socialist. The socialist “public” school system is a disaster in every city with only a relatively few affluent suburban enclaves of success. As such, the American workforce has been dumbed down, year in and year out, to the economic detriment of everyone. The socialist “public” roads are responsible for more than 50,000 highway deaths each year, which is hardly a good record. The welfare state has destroyed the work incentive of millions and caused the break-up of untold numbers of families. (The basic mechanism here is welfare and child support payments that are generous enough to create millions of deadbeat dads who abandon their children without the social stigma of having left them in dire poverty).

    Social Security reduces incentives to save for one’s own retirement. Lowered savings rates lead to less capital investment and, consequently, slower economic growth. All other government spending programs enrich the parasitic political class while impoverishing the producer class. The long history of aggressive militarism by the U.S. government has always ratcheted up governmental powers at the expense of liberty and prosperity while enriching the military/industrial/congressional complex. The system of unlimited democracy that Americans now slave under can be defined as follows: Moochers and parasites hiring/electing professional looters to steal from producers.
